A Reluctant Assassin by JC Morrows - Review and Giveaway

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: September 24, 2015
Number of pages: 228
Genre: Science Fiction, Steampunk
Series: Order of the Moonstone

Her mission was simple — get close to the Prince, and kill him. . .

Kayden entered the palace under a lie, one designed to get her close to the Prince. On the outside, she may look like a princess but beneath the mask, a killer lays in wait — for the perfect moment.

Dvarius was not ready to take the crown, nor was he ready for a wife . . . but due to his father’s unexpected death and an archaic law — he must find a bride before he is allowed to take his rightful place on the throne.

And the one woman he wants — just might be the one who is there to kill him...

What did I think of this book:
This is the first book I have read by this author. I thought the book was a good book even though it is not normally the genre I would read. There is a bit of action and romance in this book so a little for everyone. I liked the idea of a female being an assassin. For me this is what drew me to the book. I thought the character developement was good and Kayden was a strong person. The author did a good job in all the details she used. This is a good book sor someone looking for a strong female character with a little action and romance. 

About the author:
C Morrows - Bestselling author of YA Christian speculative fiction, drinker of coffee and avid reader - is a storyteller in the truest sense of the word. JC has been telling stories in one form or another her entire life and once her mother convinced her to write them down, she couldn't stop.

She finished her first speculative fiction novel purely for the enjoyment of her mother - also known as her biggest fan.

She gives God all of the glory for her talent and ability!


The Order of the Moonstone is not just another shadowy underground resistance operation.

They have a much more sinister purpose.

Kayden is about to find out just how sinister.

Go back to the very beginning with us... see how Kayden was chosen for her most important and most dangerous assignment yet.

When a reluctant assassin returns to the palace and receives a less than warm welcome, she is certain her opportunity has passed to fulfill her mission.
Or has it . . . ?

When a young prince makes the decision to ignore a certain young lady with red hair and a fiery temper to match, will he seal his fate?

Or will a moonlit ball, and a special dress bring the two of them together again - with life . . . not death . . . in mind?

Kayden’s mission should have been simple — she was sent to kill the prince . . . not to fall in love with him.

Within the palace walls, Kayden has discovered that things are not as she expected. Is there more to the royal family, or . . . is there a more sinister depth to Drey’s mission?

Dvarius thought his mind was made up — but will he have the resolve to see it through?

Between attacks from outside the palace — and within, will the Prince live long enough to choose his Queen?

And will Kayden choose to follow her head . . . or her heart — knowing that her decision could very well make her a target as well!
